2015 New Year Resolutions

Hello my lovelies, I hope you all had the most amazing Christmas and spent it with family and friends. I had a wonderful time with my family and boyfriend and looking forward to a few years in Dublin for New Year. 

I seem to set New Years Resolutions each and every year. Do i meet them? In a word, no. I go down the usual route of lose weight, exercise so this year and for 2015 i thought i would document my resolutions. 

This year has been a bittersweet one. I met the man of my dreams who has well and truly made me believe in love again after serious heartbreak 2 years ago, however on the downside i lost my wonderful Dad to lung cancer a few weeks ago, the past month or so has been horrendous to say the least but i can only thank my wonderful friends and family for being so supportive as always. 
I saw this floating around instagram and its from Lauren Conrads blog from last year but i liked it and it really made me think about my resolutions and how i see myself in 2015. 

A bad habit i'm going to break...
To say i write a predominantly beauty based blog my skincare routing is pretty shocking. Im not as young as i was when i started this blog in 2009 and when youth was on my side, im in my mid-verging on late twenties now so should really start focussing on my skin and getting a set and proper skincare routine in place. That means less of the baby wipes when i cant be bothered ensuring i take off my make up every single night no matter how tired i am or how many glasses of prosecco have passed my lips. 

A destination I'd like to visit...
As i said, i am seeing in the New Year in Dublin, Im going away with the girls to Majorca in April and have a trip to Cuba booked in August with my lovely boyfriend. Destination wise, im pretty sure thats as far as its going to stretch for next year however i would love a city break. Maybe somewhere like Amsterdam or Rome. 

I'm going to work harder at...
For various reasons my blog has taken such a backseat the past couple of years. I seem to say it each and every year but i really want to put my all into my blog for 2015 and get into twitter and instagram a little more as i seem so out of reach with the wonderful blogging babes who i have made lovely friendships with. I intend to plan and schedule posts and be as active on here as i can be. 
Another one is trying to worry less and saying yes more!

A project Id like to finish...
Not a project so to speak but I want to do more for others in 2015. I want to volunteer, donate to charity and homeless shelters and help those that are more disadvantaged than i am. 

A class Id like to take...
Im already in the process of this one. When i say that i mean a facebook message has been sent out to my girlfriends asking if they want to take up a Zumba class we started a fair few years ago now, woops. So in the new year i will be donning my skintight nike leggings and getting my Zumba on! 

I'd like to spend more time doing...
The past few months have made me realise the importance of family, and i know full well that i dont see them enough or as much as i would like. So i want to begin by putting other people first, spending time with others and making some wonderful memories that will last forever.
Id also like to spend more time reading, cooking, baking and outdoors and having more monthly me time pampering myself.

A food i want to eat more of...
I already eat too much food as it is. Im changing this one to i need to eat less food! Im much much heavier than i want to be or even comfortable at so i want to get back on the slimming world wagon (how many times have you said this i hear you cry) and maybe even join a class this time? One of my good friends is a consultant so i might give it a go. Again, i need to plan my meals, write up my shopping lists and get properly organised for both work and home. 

I want to wear more...
Dresses, particularaly  in a smaller size! It pains me when i have to reach for a hanger in a bigger size. I used to absolutely live in dresses! Now theres not a day that doesnt go by when i dont have a pair of jeans on! 

What are your New Year resolutions?
